The Meyerson Law Firm represents two families whose children recently swallowed button batteries. One is from an Apple TV knock off remote control purchased on Amazon, the other from a Polk Audio sound bar remote. Our firm is urging both companies to recall the products so that more children are not harmed.
Button batteries are extremely dangerous to small children who can quickly swallow them. The nickel sized batteries lodge in the esophagus and the electric charge chemically reacts to the saliva to create a caustic fluid that burns through their esophagus.
